Fallasburg Artist page
The natural beauty of West Michigan has played a powerful role in the development of my aesthetic. The abstract shapes & shadows of the dune & forest landscapes, the reflection of light on water & the vibrant sunsets all form the inspiration for my jewelry design. I work with metal - sheet, wire & tubing - which is sawed, soldered, forged & formed to build hand-fabricated designs that re-imagine this world in my chosen medium. The current Sunset Series is inspired by the vibrant colors of the sun setting over water. The torch firing of copper brings out a myriad of hues - scarlet, rose, orange & burgundy - incorporated with silver, brass, glass & gemstones to create unique works of art with the magic of a sunset.
